The Bears made a few roster moves today, re-signing linebacker Darrell McClover and waiving tight end Fontel Mines and guard Tyler Reed, both of whom suffered season-ending knee injuries in the preseason.
McClover appeared in 28 career contest with the Bears from 2006-08 but became a free agent following the '08 season. He did not catch on with another team.
McClover, who played for the Miami Hurricanes, was originally a seventh-round draft pick of the New York Jets. Bringing back McClover makes sense considering his ability to contribute on special teams, but it also might mean that Jamar Williams' ankle injury is more serious.
Kind of confused as to why we re-signed another linebacker, even for ST purposes. I think we have some other pressing needs.
